The Grand Power S.R.O. company – known to the general public for its line of rotating-barrel, polymer-frame semi-automatic pistols – introduced its first long gun, a pistol-caliber semi-automatic carbine dubbed the Stribog S9, which had been anticipated last year at IWA with a handful of eyes-only flyers.
Chambered for the 9x19mm caliber, and feeding through double-stack magazines patterned after the UZI or Colt SMG magazine design, the Grand Power Stribog S9 is a modern sporting rifle conceived for civilian applications – sport shooting, home defense, property protection – featuring an AR-15 type pistol grip and a polymer side-folding stock.
The barrel length may vary depending from local laws and regulations, but all feature a proprietary flash hider; the lower receiver of the Stribog S9 semi-automatic carbine features AR-15 style controls, while the upper receiver sports a reversible cocking handle and KEYMOD slots on the forend.
The Grand Power Stribog S9 semi-automatic carbine features no factory-issue sights or aiming devices – replaced by a full-length top MIL-STD-1913 “Picatinny” rail. The Grand Power company also has a select-fire SMG variant of the design ready for MIL/LE sales, upon request.
